    FXStreet (Córdoba) - The Aussie was among the top performers in the currency market during the last five days, supported by strong economic data from Australia that removed expectation of another rate cut by the RBA.

    AUD/USD rose almost a hundred pips from the level it had a week ago and finished trading around 0.7120/40. It posted weekly gains for the first time after falling during the previous four weeks.
